Reminds me of Kit William's "Masquerade". I remember his coffee-table book that kicked off a treasure hunt in the '70's. I later read with fascination how the treasure hunt was planned, executed, and finally solved. The party that solved the puzzle did not in fact find the golden hare — instead an individual who had not solved it did.


We need more hidden treasures, I think.

Here is quick video summary about the "Masquerade" puzzle. The solution seems quite arbitrary. (drawing a line over left eye and hand without knowing the exact point can lead to quite different letters.) https://youtu.be/3yaHBdhIsCo The Rocky mountains treasure is also mentioned.
